P.s.: Anyone using RaMover in WBStartup (prefs), then remove it! It may/will cause a GR.

Does this mean we can remove "sam440update" from wbstartup?

I doubt it. They are for completely different things (AFAIK).

Disk access speed is much improved.

I opened up OWB from scratch in under a second (!), used to take 5-7 seconds and 'halt/block' access to stuff like opening a WB window during this time. Graphics seem to draw quicker in OWB too.

So far, great impression.

This DMA fix, does it affect the internal SATA 2 controller on SAM 460´s?

Only had time to have a quick play, but OWB is very snappy now in both gfx and network access.

Nice selection of new background images as well, using the Sky one here - looks great if you set the Workbench font to White.
